How to think of, and to orchestrate material events for mixed sensory experience, the entanglements of tactile, aural and visual? I will approach this question as an artist-researcher, in conversation with science studies, Karen Barad’s philosophy and my installation “Untitled (2014)”. Here the focus is on the entanglements of the tactile and the aural, and on conceiving of an interactive installation as a materializing event, a multiplicity of agential cuts (Barad, 2007). Attention is drawn to the ways in which interactions of different human and nonhuman elements produce movement across trajectories of material transformations. Of particular interest are those movements, which involve the agency of air.
